About Refined

Refined is the creation of Anna Applegate and Kathryn Ivey, who combine years of design training with a love for finding classic furnishings and accessories and updating them to fit today's chic interiors. 

Seeking an alternative to mass-produced home decor, Anna and Kathryn feel that one's home should be personal and distinctive, so each piece they sell is one of a kind. And by reviving vintage items with their creative eyes, the girls strive to encourage responsible, "green" design.

Bringing Back The Vanity...

There is something to be said about the femininity of a woman having her "nook" in the bedroom, where she can sit and "freshen up" or put on her jewelry. I daydream about having an area like this, yet I am usually putting on the last touches of my makeup while fighting road rage in rush hour traffic and then hoping I applied everything in the right place when I get out of my car!

Refined is helping to bring back the idea of the vanity with our newest addition, a glossy red wrought iron vanity chair. I just love the lines of this little chair, and it reminded me of Zoey Deschanel's wrought iron bench featured in one of the last Dominos. Check out our site for more information.
